This week could not have gotten much worse for the last-place New Jersey Devils.
Much like their season thus far, the Devils went win-less in their three games--all on the road.
On Monday, days after Kovalchuk's overtime winner put the Devils in a happy mindset, New Jersey was shutout in Boston. The 3-0 loss began a spiraling week for the Devils.
Later on, they score one goal in a 3-1 loss as they crossed the border into Toronto.
New Jersey finally jumped out to a lead last night, only to blow it late as Mike McKenna gave up the final two goals, as the Devils, who remain with only five wins, dropped the game 3-2 in St. Louis to the Blues.
To make matters worse, goalie Martin Brodeur was sent home after the loss in Toronto for evaluation in his right elbow. It is uncertain about his playing ability in the near future.
The Devils will be busy this week, playing four games across the span. Tomorrow night, New Jersey will face a tough task as they host Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.
The Devils will also host the Flames, this time on Wednesday, before two matinee games on Long Island and home against the Flyers.
Jersey's Team currently sits at a record of 5-13-2.
